CLIMATE

A conceptual Approach to Understanding the Caribbean Climate

YEAR TWO, SEMESTER ONE, CARIBBEAN SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE.

TUTOR: ARCHITECT CAMIEL STANBURY-SMITH, ARCHITECT FRANCIOS MUNDA, ARTIST MICHEAL BONNICK

This Project was selected for exhibit at Maison de l'Architecture de Guadeloupe (MAG) (Jan 2022)

The climate project had an objective of exploring day-lighting, thermal comfort, and ventilation along with a plethora of other conditions and how one deals with these issues through the manipulation of the building fabric.

I was designated to develop an envelope system for the South and West facades of the building which satisfies the needs of the internal environment.

WHAT INSPIRED THIS DESGN WAS CUBISM.

This project required the rigorous testing of study models to find a solution and create a balance in allowing views out of the building while maintaining adequate shading and baring direct sunlight from entering the building. As well as to satisfy the needs of both the public and private spaces allowing more views out of the building in the public area but restricting in the private area.

 

The beginning of the design process focused on the selection and development of a concept; Cubanism. The design plays with the geometry of the square and its taller sister; the rectangle in a series of scaled patterns that mitigate direct sunlight and allow for passive ventilation and cooling. This design solution is made successful by its layering and its adaption in the treatment of the public and private levels.
